Is it me , or is something terribly wrong here ?
Do I have Future Shock ?
I couldn't bring myself to watch the live(?) vid . Does she(?) look like an anime cartoon 'in real life' ? ( What is real ?)
Just wait till the pornographers get a hold (sorry) of this technology . They seem to be first adapters . Will 2 actual humans have sex in the ( near ) future ?

A must see it's so darn relevant ,

Yes , the name of the film is Thomas in Love . This review from getting suckier Netflix ( won't let you link ), and it is on Instant as well .

It combines social satire, science fiction and a kind of "love story" into one intriguing and enchanting whole. It's also one of the most creative and concise visions of computer-addicted modern life that has come along. The premise is clever and the follow-through extraordinary ...

Pointed to this movie:
Thomas in Love(Thomas est Amoureux)
2001R 93 minutes
This quirky film from Pierre-Paul Renders charts the search for love and meaning in cyberspace by an agoraphobe named Thomas Thomas (Benoit Verhaert), who hasn't left his home in years. His mother (Micheline Hardy) and everyone else talks to him via videophone, and his girlfriend, Clara, is computer-generated. But into his world arrives a prostitute (Aylin Yay) who just may give him reason to go offline and outdoors.
